The Daily Photoist: The Arrest

Each weekday morning, we pick a recent image from the Torontoist Flickr Pool and feature it here on the site. It’s our way to give the many excellent photographers in our pool the attention they deserve!
Though not exactly certain what happened here, SirCharlie caught the tail end of this arrest in College Park yesterday. He speculates that the arrest may have been connected with a smashed in car window in one of the nearby parking lots. It’s not often we find this sort of photojournalistic montage in our Flickr pool, and it brings up all sorts of mixed emotions/questions about the situation — was so much force needed? Was the person resisting? If the man wasn’t homeless (as SirCharlie claims), would he have been treated differently?
Anyone else happen to see this and can shed more light?
